Jeremy Sewall

Years of Participation

Acclaimed Boston chef, restaurateur and seafood authority Jeremy Sewall has worked in kitchens around the globe, from the Relais & Chateau White Barn Inn, to one of the pioneers of the farm-to-table movement, The Lark Creek Inn in Larkspur, California. In February 2006, Jeremy and his wife Lisa, a pastry chef, opened Lineage in Brookline, MA, which for 10 years was a beloved neighborhood institution.

Building on the success of Lineage, Jeremy opened Island Creek Oyster Bar in Boston’s Kenmore Square in 2010. In 2013, he and his partners opened an approachable beer and oyster bar, Row 34, in Boston’s Fort Point neighborhood to much acclaim. A second Row 34 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire soon followed, and a third in Burlington, MA. At the helm of the restaurants, he garnered many awards locally and nationally – from Saveur, Boston magazine, Bon Appetit, GQ and more. Sewall has appeared on hit shows including Simply Ming, Top Chef and Beat Bobby Flay.

Jeremy released his first cookbook, James Beard Award nominated The New England Kitchen: Fresh Takes on Seasonal Recipes, with co-author Erin Byers Murray. He then co-authored a second book, Oysters: A Celebration in the Raw, with Marion Swaybill. Sewall partnered with Erin Byers Murray again in 2021 to release The Row 34 Cookbook: Stories and Recipes from a Neighborhood Oyster Bar.

Through Sewall’s restaurants, books, and teaching he is truly dedicated to celebrating the diversity of New England seafood and the passion of the people who bring it to us.
